Nights in Ural - Geschichten der Heimat [63_054]
"This is what i call REAL experimental music. Imagine Disco/Lounge beats meets Acid, mixed up to an epic tale. Andreas Seibel, who is well known in the netlabelscene as Dataman, is presenting his first Nights in Ural release on 2063. The Ural has a special role in Andreas life. He has no conscious memory on the Ural where he was born, but he uses this cold and sparse landscapes as a projection screen for his desires. This imaginative landscapes lead to a very visual and almost epic approach. "Nights in Ural is reflecting my desire for loneliness", he told me in a mail.
Run time 45 min
I explicit supported Andreas idea of making something strage with downbeats and 303 elements and i'm very curious about more things to come!"
Andreas Seibel runs an netlabel himself called "LegoEgo" (http://www.legoego.de) and had various releases on stadtgruenlabel.net, comatronic.net und subsource.de and other vinyl-releases.

Exploring the Fringes the Experimental
Six tracks definitely exploring the fringes of the experimental genre.
Flussterwald", "Silhouette der Nact", and "Steppenwolf" each each lead off with lonely, melancholy sounds with slight discord and eventually merge with disco-like, jazzy beats. "Auf der Jagt" offers strange electronic sounds, odd loops, disconcerting beats, and even a brief minimal house-like interlude. "Spuren in Schnee" is a favorite with its sad, cold electronics, driving beats, and space-filling organ chords that emerge in the final few minutes of the track. "Die Geslat am Fluss" is another favorite that leads off with abstract, discordant electronics that evolve into some beautiful, etheral electronic ambience with continuing hints of discord.
